The PSX series is a product of Larry Maier's 10 years experience in designing and producing intelligent, solid state, DCC circuit breakers and auto reversers. Patent pending. The PSX specifically addresses the increased inrush loads (currents) which occur due to large capacitors used for sound systems. This load appears as a system short circuit until the capacitors are charged. The logic in the new PSXs determines if the load is a true short or just an inrush overload.
DCC Specialties, manufacturer of the unique HARE, Wabbit and other exclusive DCC products, has acquired the rights to the former PowerShield, a market leader line of high performance, reliable DCC circuit breakers and auto reversers. Many new product improvements and innovations have been incorporated in the new series named PowerShieldX.
DCC Specialties is so confident about the PSX's quality and performance that they are providing a 1 year "Goof Proof Warranty". The design is so innovative that patents have been applied for.
There are (5) versions of the new PSX-AR Series Integrated DCC Circuit Breaker and Auto-Reversers:

- PSX-ARFB, same as above with added network feedback
- PSX-ARSC, with integrated snap coil decoder
- PSX-ARSCFB, same as above with added network feedback.
